Trouble at AFC Leopards as players boycott training

AFC Leopards players on Wednesday were forced to boycott training over two months salary dues.

The 13 times league winners are facing financial constraints after the exit of betting firm who were their main sponsor.

Players who spoke to Daily Nation said they were forced to boycott training after the club management failed to honor their promise to settle the bill.

The player also revealed that their are facing financial struggles on their individual capacity others having their houses closed by landlords.

“We are really struggling as players. Most of us have debts and our houses are locked due to rent arrears. The promises are yet to bear fruits and we are now tired,” a player, who sought anonymity, told Nation Sport.

The players had also refused to train on Wednesday last week prior to the aborted league match against Sony Sugar

Earlier Boycott

Ingwee Chairman Dr. Dan Shikanda last week indeed confirmed that the club owns players and the technical bench a two month salary but they are working hard to have the payments paid.

“We shall pay our players but we still don’t have money. The situation has been tough because we don’t have sponsor and it is unfortunate some of them didn’t show up for training,” said Shikanda.

Club management has resorted to its fans to support the club through attending matches and also contributing directly to the club.

Ingwee now has a paybill number where wellwishers can support the club directly.

“Good morning our dear members and supporters to make any contributions to the club during this time, kindly use M-Pesa Paybill 522522 A/C 1178000834 Thank you for your continued support.

  1. I run a vape shop website directory and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the United States that also markets CBD product lines. A Month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop submission site. We do not offer CBD products like CBD oil. We simply provide marketing and advertising services to CBD firms. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Leading Health Retail store and if you take a good peek, you will see that they offer for sale a relatively comprehensive range of CBD items, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement solution. It appears that PayPal is employing double standards to different firms. As a result of this stipulation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has restrained my payment possibilities and now, I am greatly dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have consulted with a barrister from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is doing is absolutely illegal and inequitable as it ought to be applying an uniform standard to all companies. I am yet to check with one more legal representative from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
